LaSalle II middle school students celebrated “Pi Week” the week of March 12th !
3.14 is the approximation of the number pi, which is why we celebrate typically on March 14th, but due to PARCC testing we were able to celebrate the entire week! During the week, students were able to discover all about the number pi (π). Students participated in the following activities: making Pi Shirts, watching videos about Pi, completing a discovery activity involving circles, making Pi cities, completed a research project about the number Pi, and more. We even had a digit competition where the two students in each class who memorized the most digits of pi, went home with a PIE!
